Maintenance Tips

A house at the shore has different demands, salt water corrosion damage and occasional use place additional demands on appliances.

A few preventive measures performed before winter can save you appliance service calls in the spring.



 1. Icemaker Bar. Lift the bar to shut off the icemaker, especially if the refrigerator is left running, and the house water supply is shut off

 2. Inspect your washer fill hoses. Look for soft spots or bubbles,
especially near the ends of the hoses.
Change them every 5 years, or if any bad spots are found.

 3. Lubricate and clean. Use a spray lubricant such as WD-40 to coat all
hinges and latches of your
washer, dryer, range, refrigerator, dishwasher.


 4. Prepare your garbage disposer. A cup full of cooking oil with a little
lemon juice mixed in, poured
into the disposer as the very last thing done when leaving, will coat and
protect the internal parts of the unit, leaving it fresher smelling for
your return!
